A Guilty, Authentic Rant of Epic Proportions.


EraseWorkingMomGuiltGuilt. It’s one of those words that, although it’s 2019, people still tend to stay hush-hush about because of fear of looking less than perfect on social media. People don’t want to look bad in front of all of their followers, right? Why would they want to do a thing like that?

Try Shipt and Ask Yourself, “Where Have You Been All my Life?”

You guys.

I am obsessed with this service..it’s basically a personal assistant that will grab your groceries for you and deliver them straight to your home!! You pick what you want from what store, click each item and add it to your order, pay and wait. They are quick, efficient, and absolutely amazing. I have used them twice now and I literally said while singing their praise to my mother today, “Where has this been all my life??”

You can try a two week free trial at the link below and it helps me get a $50 credit towards a future order for me if you sign up – people helping people is a beautiful thing! I seriously love it and lately my life has been SO busy – this helps me in a major way!
